Street Vending Regulation Tracking Project

Regulations on street vending differ from city to city and frequently change due to political decision-making, posing a significant a risk to street vendors of fines and seizures.

The Harbor Institute for Immigrant and Economic Justice acknowledges the inaccessibility and complexity of this information, in addition to the struggle of actively following these regulation changes. Our team developed a project in collaboration with law students at the UC Irvine Law Pro Bono Clinic to collect information on 2022 street vending regulations, restrictions, permit requirements and processes, and other information on the Orange County cities most affected by the strict enforcement of street vending regulations. The Harbor Institute plans to keep track of any new regulations and will continue updating the Street Vending Regulation Tracking Project with new regulations.
